Cook's Notes

If a phyllo sheet tears as you work, simply patch it together with melted butter, saving full sheets for top and bottom stacks.

      I have a recipe from a friend's very Greek mama. I use honey to make my syrup. Also you can pour hot syrup over cold baklava, or cold syrup over hot baklava, never do it when they are both hot.

      A little too sweet for me. I wouldn't use all the syrup it calls for if I made it again and would make thicker layers of phyllo between the nut mixture. Easy to make.
